Abstract

  • Humans are good at finding the beat in a piece of music.
  • Many qualities, like beats per minute, contribute to speed perception in music: familiarity with the musical culture; event density; and how we divide time in a musical piece.
  • The “Gabbling Foreigner Illusion” occurs when we perceive another’s language as being faster than our own.
  • Even when music is the same speed, listeners tap faster to unfamiliar music.
  • Does culture impact how we process music?
